Texas Tremors Likely Triggered By Gas Injection Processes: Study
2013-11-05 09:17:43

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A newly published study has confirmed a series of small earthquakes that shook the west Texas town of Snyder can be blamed on a production process in the oil fields. In 2004 workers at the Cogdell Oil Field began injecting their wells with carbon dioxide as a way to increase production, a method that researchers now say was responsible for a spate of earthquakes that shook the area between 2006 and 2011. This is not the first...

Turner Greenhouses helps the backyard greenhouse gardener get ready for winter greenhouse gardening with easy, essential steps. Goldsboro, NC (PRWEB) November 01, 2013 September, October and November. Ahh, fall. Perfect for the outdoors, right? How about inside? That’s right. Inside a greenhouse is an ideal place to be during the fall. The temperatures are pleasant during the day while cooling off at nighttime. It’s most welcome and refreshing after the hot months of summer. When...

Vital Precipitation Could Be Lost Through Climate Geoengineering
2013-11-01 07:38:38

[ Watch the Video: Monsoonal Rains Could Shrink Due To Geoengineering ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study, led by scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), shows that although a significant build-up in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere would alter worldwide precipitation patterns, a widely discussed technological approach to reduce future global warming would also interfere with rainfall and snowfall. The findings, published...

Toxic Ocean Conditions During Ancient Extinction Event Analyzed
2013-10-30 04:24:55

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Toxic oxygen-free and hydrogen sulfide-rich ocean conditions that existed during a major extinction event nearly 94 million years ago could repeat themselves in the future, according to new research being published online this week in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Research, led by biogeochemists at the University of California, Riverside, suggests that the previous estimates of these oxygen-free,...

Study Of Photosynthesis Clears Path To Developing New Super-crops
2013-10-17 16:32:44

How some plant species evolved super-efficient photosynthesis had been a mystery. Now, scientists have identified what steps led to that change. Around three per cent of all plants use an advanced form of photosynthesis, which allows them to capture more carbon dioxide, use less water, and grow more rapidly. Overall this makes them over 50% more efficient than plants that use the less efficient form. A new study has traced back the evolutionary paths of all the plants that use advanced...

Aquascaping
2013-04-02 10:31:02

Aquascaping is the art of arranging aquatic plants along with rocks, cavework, stones, or driftwood, in an aesthetically pleasing manner within an aquarium. Aquascape designs incorporate numerous distinctive styles. Usually, an aquascape houses fish as well as plants, although it’s possible to produce an aquascape with solely plants, or with rockwork or other hardscape and no plants. Even though the main goal of aquascaping is to construct an artful underwater landscape, the technical...

Ocean Acidification
2013-04-01 10:32:20

Ocean acidification is the name that was given to the ongoing decrease in the pH of Earth’s oceans, a cause of the uptake of anthropogenic carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. About 30 to 40 percent of the carbon dioxide that is released by humans into the atmosphere dissolves into the lakes, oceans, and rivers. To maintain the chemical equilibrium, some of it reacts with the water to create carbonic acid. Some of these extra carbonic acid molecules react with a water molecule to provide a...

Earth's Atmosphere
2004-10-19 04:45:44

Earth's Atmosphere -- Earth's atmosphere consists of nitrogen (78.1%) and oxygen (20.9%), with small amounts of argon (0.9%), carbon dioxide (variable, but around 0.035%), water vapor, and other gases. The atmosphere protects life on Earth by absorbing ultraviolet solar radiation and reducing temperature extremes between day and night. 75% of the atmosphere exists within 11km of the planetary surface. Temperature and the Atmospheric Layers The temperature of the Earth's atmosphere...
